Ein Quiz, das ich gern spielen möchte PDF Drucken E-Mail

Da meine Weigerung, bei lukrativen Sendungen wie dem grade zum zweiten Mal ausgetragenen "Super-Champion" anzutreten allgemeines Unverständnis hervorgerufen hat, sollte ich vielleicht einmal ausbuchstabieren, was ich eigentlich spielen will. Ich habe das folgende grob skizziert Günter Jauch als erstem angeboten, sollte er ablehnen, mache ich es auch auf anderen Privatsendern wie PRO7.

Ich möchte...

1. Ein Buzzerquiz wie "Hopp oder Topp" spielen, bei dem man in die vorgelesene (offene, kein Multiple-Choice) Frage reinbuzzern kann, die Frage wird nicht weiter vorgelesen, man hat 5 Sekunden Zeit mit der Antwort. Alle Fragen sind gleich viel wert, richtige Antwort gibt einen Punkt, eine teils oder ganz falsche Punktabzug. Dabei sind Stringfragen a la "Wer gewann die Australian Open...bei den Damen...vor zwei Jahren...im Golf" nicht gestattet, man müsste hier formulieren "Wer gewann 2010 im Damengolf die Australian Open", Fangfragen gehören dazu, aber nicht via Vorleseart.

2. Ich bestehe auf mindestens 200 Fragen, ich halte die 240 der Quizweltmeisterschaft für einen guten Umfang.

3. Die Fragen müssen wie bei der WM global gestreut sein, ich akzeptiere maximal 10% Fragen über deutsche Themen. Ich lege Wert auf Bildfragen und Toneinspielungsfragen.

4. Da ein Spiel gegen einen Gegner wohl eher witzlos ist, möchte ich gegen eine Gruppe von Gegnern spielen, ich denke an eine Größenordnung von zehn. Als Basis für diese Gruppe bieten sich nach meinem Dafürhalten die sieben Millionengewinner von "Wer wird Millionär" an, insbesondere wenn es auf RTL läuft, dazu würde ich Prominente vorschlagen, die sich im Fernsehen bewährt haben, beim Super-Champion Andreas Kieling, Guido Knopp, Dirk Steffens, Tim Mälzer und Marcel Reif, Hellmuth Karasek ist wohl auch geeignet, man muss aber immer dran denken, dass sie auch schnell buzzern müssen, vielleicht wäre Iris Radisch da schon besser. Lilo Wanders ist sehr gut, vielleicht Ranga Yogeshwar. Ich akzeptiere jeden berühmten Wissenschaftler, auch Nobelpreisträger, die Prominentengewinner von "Millionär" wie Olli Pocher halte ich eher für zu schlecht. Ich schließe alle Spieler als Gegner aus, die bei einer IQA-WM schon mal über 100 Punkte gespielt haben, das wären Leute wie die beiden ZDF-Super-Champions Sebastian Jacoby und Manuel Hobiger, die sind mir zu gefährlich, würde aber akzeptieren, dass sie bei der Teamzusammenstellung und dem Coaching helfen.

5. Ich spiele nur live, ich traue dem Fernsehen und der herrschenden Klasse allgemein nämlich nicht.

6. Das wohl schwierigste Problem ist die Fragenerstellung, da "Mind the Company" das mit Sicherheit nicht zu 100% bewältigen kann. Mir wäre der Weltverband IQA am liebsten, da kenne ich aber einige Leute, ich würde auch Ken Jennings oder amerikanische Verbände wie NAQT akzeptieren, wenn sie ihre Fragen den WM-Fragen angleichen können.
